I've been taking lessons with Jon for over a month now, and have seen my skill grow considerably. He is a wildly talented musician, and equally talented teacher. He has a deep passion for music, and seeing his students grow. Jon marries theory with practice - so if you're a nerd (like me) you'll enjoy the depths of his musical knowledge. I treasure my lessons, and look forward to many more.
David Eickstaedt has a great depth of knowledge and experience on singing. He is a fun teacher who is willing to work with you to find convienient times for you to take lessons and he is willing to work with you on what you want to get out singing. He can teach you to improve your range, to use your breathing more efficiently, to incorporate vabrado, etc. He is always on time and ready to work with you. A very good teacher.
Rodrigo Herrera is a wonderful tutor. He comes prepared and creates a plan especially for your child. Also, he is a patient and gentle man. My son really likes him and so do I.
Very welcoming and knowledgable. Already scheduled my next lesson. Looking forward to continuing lessons.
My daughter really enjoys taking her piano and vocal lessons there. The teacher warmed up to her right away and she felt very comfortable and at ease.
My 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son have taken piano lessons with Elif for several years now. Aside from being a wonderful teacher, she has also taught my children many life lessons through her instruction that will stick with them forever. I cannot say enough good things about her!
I searched Craigslist for instructors in Orange County who teach "Moeller", a specialized method to maximize energy efficiency while drumming. David O and I spoke briefly on the phone about my expectations. I have taken just 5 lessons in total, and so far, my goals have been met or exceeded, including a huge breakthrough on my speed and technique (I'm a technical metal drummer). I can't express how to the point and precise David is. He has learned from some of the best drummers in the business and I feel honored to have the opportunity to work with him and improve my craft. Thank you David!!
I have been taking lessons from Dan for more than two and a half years and it something I look forward to every week. Aside from being a great teacher, he is fun, understanding and very talented. He takes the time to help you understand the structure of what you are learning without over burdening you with theory. He is also really interested in making sure you are enjoying playing (that is the point) and getting out of it exactly what you want. Any time I have a request (no matter how absurd) of a song to learn, Dan takes the time to find a good arrangement at my level and teaches it to me. It is really nice having that flexibility and personal investment in my lessons. In just two and a half years, I went from playing no to guitar to be comfortable jamming with my friends while also developing my classical guitar playing skills. His musical interests are vast; from beautiful classical pieces to classic rock solos to movie soundtracks (he loves Storybook Love from the Princess Bride). This blend of genres and talents truly sets Dan a part and I would encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Dan.
I'm very happy with my lessons!
I have never played the piano or keyboard in my life, however I always wanted to learn. I found Phil on thumbtack and I have learned so much! I’ve learned all the notes and feel very comfortable playing the keyboard at my current level. Thank Phil, I look forward to continuing my lessons.
Peter is an outstanding instructor. Very personable, knowledgeable, takes his time to instruct, demonstrate and then, while I am peforming the move, if needing correction , does so in a calm and easy way. He fit the bill for everything I am looking for in learning self defense in a non class type setting. You wont be disappointed in giving Peter a try. He has all the equipment, mats, and practice items to use as well..He's also very flexible given my schedule of the times I am in his area on other business, to schedule a lesson around.
Yuen has been really great to work with. She is flexible in her scheduling, very patient with my limited abilities in the piano and my occasionally spotty practice regimen, always friendly and cheerful, and, as far as I can tell with my still-limited knowledge base, really knows her stuff. I am definitely improving under her tutelage, and look forward to having my daughter start taking lessons with her when she turns four.
My 6 year old has just started violin lessons with Joanna. She is absolutely wonderful with my young beginner. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes learning fun. My daughter can't wait to see her each week and wants to impress Joanna with all she has learned. Great music room environment for learning a new instrument. We are very excited at our daughters progess and we thank Joanna for her wonderful music program!
Paul has been the most amazing instructor. I have never played the electric guitar before and his level of patience has made it extremely easy for me to learn. He writes lesson plans and assigns "homework" appropriate for your level of experience which helps in learning or further developing your skill. I plan on continuing to take lessons with Paul for quite some time.
I wanted to arrange guitar lessons for my daughter as a Christmas present. The experience was great especially since we live hundreds of miles away from each other. I was a first time user of Thumbtack and I will definitely use it again.
For the last three years, I have been taking voice lessons with Elaine and I really enjoy her way of teaching. She gives me many good techniques to develop my voice. She also gives me a lot of confidence to express my feelings in the interpretation of musical pieces that I study with her. I really appreciate her knowledge of voice placement in English, French and Italian because it makes the learning process so much easier. She is very caring about not being to hard on the voice. I love doing the different exercises she proposes. There is variety and lightness in her teaching but also a strong feeling of continuity and rigor. She is very precise in her explanations. I feel my voice is developing well, as well as my musical expression. My voice is really coming alive now. Thank you so much Elaine. You are a great discovery for me as a teacher! Dominique
This year, our daughter won first place in the Chicago Chapter National Association of Teachers of Singing (CCNATS)’ High School Division 1 Vocal Competition! At Elizabeth’s suggestion, she also auditioned for the Anima Chorus of Glen Ellyn, and sang a solo with them on WFMT’s Saturday Broadcast of Introductions. Elizabeth is truly an amazing teacher! She explains everything very well and never leaves a question unanswered. Our daughter, Brianna Dulock, has received nothing but compliments from other experienced professionals […] It is impressive how much information Elizabeth can fit into one lesson. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the high quality of your voice lessons, and for giving our daughter this amazing voice.” — Rose Figuero Dulock, Stone Park, IL
Altered Stage is a great concept. I was looking for a place to learn guitar and did some research. After I saw the Yelp reviews, I gave them a call. I am so glad I did! Jeff Bergau and I spoke for an hour, just getting to know one another. He was very reassuring and encouraging. I have been taking lessons from Jason Steele. He is great - enthusiastic, helpful, positive, and motivational. I highly recommend becoming a member and taking lessons from Jason. For the drummers out there, Dave Agee is incredible! In the time that I've been a member, I've learn so much and have become a member of this community of kindred spirits and fellow music lovers. The new space at 657 W Lake Street is incredible: the overall vibe is great - a testament to Jeff Bergau's spirit and commitment. There are private and group jam rooms as well as a relaxed atmosphere to encourage members to chill and spend time with one another. The people and place are truly unique.
I’ve been singing forever, and Elisabeth is hands down the best teacher of vocal technique I’ve ever worked with. She can teach any style and really understands how the voice works. She doesn’t settle for just good enough, always pushing you to be excellent. I’ve had a lot of success in the musical theater world and I owe so much of that success to Elisabeth.
My 4 years old son has been taking private lessons with shihui. She is very patient, and I can see my son's improvements after each classes with her. Strongly recommend her to all kids who needs to learn piano, I swear you will love her just like I do.
I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
